You can try to use XiaomiTool and flash your phone with instead.

https://www.xiaomitool.com/V2/
Also, have you tried fastboot boot recovery.img
To see if you can boot TWRP or something?
(fastboot boot might work better than flashing)

I don't have any experience with Miflash, so can't offer any advice on that.
Personally I would try fastboot boot first, since XiaomiTool is in alfa-version.

Sorry for my late reply, I had forgotten to answer this earlier, did you try to perform a regular flash (not bricked option) from XiaomiTool. if that doesn't work either, maybe you should ask the developer of XiaomiTool2 for hints. :)

if you're still there, i resolve this issue.

you need to jump charge your battery using external charger ( external charger jumped wire direct on your battery). maybe for 30mins.

then try again to charge your phone, if it reapond and have display 0% battery, let it charge for atleast 50% then power ON.

If it stucks on logo.. do reflash.
